Sophos has introduced synchronised security protection against today’s sophisticated threats with the Sophos Security Heartbeat capability.

“Synchronised security from Sophos is a key innovation in next-generation security protection, and we are delivering that through Sophos Security Heartbeat,” said Stuart Fisher, Managing Director for Asia Pacific, Sophos.

The company’s Sophos XG series of next-generation firewalls and UTMs will be equipped with this new technology.
